5:04pm
cathy laker in issued a statement and reads in -- cathy lanier issued a statement: it's ash pauling to me that a officer on the mpd for 18 years would engage in this type of cutting. the u.s. attorney for the district of columbia said, quote, the defendant is accused of betraying the public trust by targeting victims for sexual assault. this indictment shows that no one is above the law. officer seay was in court today and had his arraignment, ordered back to court in september and -- september and we learned he had his police powers revoked last year. so, and that is about the time the last allegation is made. so, obviously authorities have known about this for a year and now a grand jury indicted the officer with sexual assault, laura. >> were his victims randomly selected or did the officer know the women? >> we're not sure whether he knew them. there was one woman who apparently was assaulted in
5:05pm
september of 2006 and then again in 2010. the sources do tell us those might have been women working the streets and, therefore, the threat of arrest may have played into that reason, laura. >> thank you very much, bob barnard. a police chase in bowie, maryland, ended with a head-on crash involved with a suspect and police officer. no word if there was anything specific that led to this crash other than the high-speed chase. fire and rescue crews tell fox 5 that the officer does have serious and non-life- threatening injuries. the suspect is critically injured. and we're following developing news out of the district. federal prosecutors are scrambling after the judge declared a mistrial in rodger clemens' perjury trial. what caused the judge to make the ruling on day two of the trial? >> reporter: testimony had just gotten underway for the day when prosecutors played the
5:06pm
jury a portion of roger clemens' testimony before congress and where he denied using steroids. the tape went on too long and the jury heard a portion of the testimony the judge had previously ruled was too prejudicial. the judge lashed ou prosecutors and stormed off the bench. steven durham and his team of federal prosecutors left the courthouse about an hour after the judge declared a mistrial. do you have any comment about what happened, mr. durham? >> under a gag order. >> you have nothing to say about what hap hep -- happened? nothing at all? >> reporter: one member of the team reminded reporters a gag order was still in effect and in court, durham and his team were scolded by a furious judge who said i think if a first- year law student would know you can't bolster the credibility with one witness with clearly inadmissible evidence. the inadmissible evidence had to do with laura pettitte, the
5:07pm
wife of pitcher andy pettitte, roger clemens' teammate on the yanks and astros. pettitte claims clemens told him on two occasions he had taken and used human growth hormone. clemens said that pettitte must have misheard him but pettitte's wife laura told investigators that andy shared the conversation with her and that is what the jury should not have heard. anything laura pettitte had to say was offlimits. when the defense objected, judge walton said was yet not redacted pursuant to my ruling? the defense attorney said we didn't get the marked exhibits until the 11th hour and then the government moved them in quickly this morning. we were supposed to have them three days in advance noting that andy pettitte's testimony is crucial to the case and the judge said i don't know how i can unring this bell. roger clemens had no visible reaction to the judge's decision. as he left the courtroom, the seven-time cy young winner said
5:08pm
nothing, took out his cell phone, went down the hallway and made a call. roger clemens was facing six counts of obstructing congress, making false statements and perjury. a retrial is far from certain. the judge told both sides he wanted motions on what to do next. he wants to hear from the defense by july 29th and the government by august 19th. he wondered aloud if double jeopardy would bar a retrial. a hearing is set for september 2nd. >> and ing a lot of people were stunned by everything that happened today. clearly a major blunder by the government. what was their defense to this? >> reporter: they initially tried to make a defense but the judge cut them off. he was so mad, he didn't ask for one and prosecutors didn't offer one. the only thing the government offered was to instruct the jury to disregard what they heard but the judge didn't buy it. >> in the end, what did the judge tell the jury? he apologized profusely, shawn, saying we have take know a week out of your lives. when a judge makes a ruling on
5:09pm
evidence, it must be obeyed. in the united states, he said, we try to ensure everyone is treated fairly. some jurors were astonished and upset over what happened, shawn. >> thank you, paul wagner. joining us now to talk about today's stunning developments is defense attorney bernie grim with kozen and o'connor. bernie, this is clearly a major blunder by the government. how can something like this happen? >> it shouldn't, paul. i know both prosecutors good guys, very professional, and very experienced. i think it's something where the judge said you have to redact the tape and when you get to this point, cut it off and don't show the jury anymore and it fell between the cracks and the government sort of balked, spike, at this and -- so to speak, at this and the judge is about business. he's a wonderful judge and when he makes a rule, you better stick to it or there are consequences. >> i was in the courtroom and
5:10pm
watching this and i didn't realize what was happening until they started saying aloud what was really egregious was the fact that during the bench conditions what, laura pettitte had to say remained up on the televisions. the jury was looking at this during the bench conference and that was probably what upset walton more than anything. >> and that is sort of whose mind in the hep house here and the sound was turned off but the post script was it and you could read her words and judge walton is right. this circumstantial evidence 101 that any law student would know. it's hearsay and the jury can't hear it and he's right. the bell's rung. you can't unring it at this point. >> and talk about double jeopardy, he wandered aloud as to whether or not the government could bring a trial again and i thought you could only have double jeopardy if
5:11pm
someone was acquitted, how does this work? >> if there is a mistrial, a lawyer gets sec or juror gets sec, the case is essentially over and you can restart the case; however, if the case was aborted as a result of the gross negligence of the government, or the government intentionally sort of threw the case because they thought they were losing, double jeopardy does, in fact, attach and i imagine the lawyer will say they were ordered to keep it out, everyone was on the same page, the court told them, they knew, they're experienced and it's the united states that is against mr. clemens and nobody thought to redact the tape out of all of the people. the argument was that it was not negligent but grossly negligence and mr. clemens can't be retried. >> thank you very much for your analysis and back upstairs to laura. >> paul wagner, thank you. >> a quiet, tight-knit community ripped a part by an unbelievable crime. tonight, the man accused of killing an innocent eight-year-
